             P.A.S.S  

   (Players Active Strategy Sessions) 

  PASS is a strategy workout based on the premise that by constantly playing points, participants will greatly improve their ability to win, better yet, their ability to compete. During each session, players will play against each other in games up to either seven, eleven or fifteen points. Each player will serve either two of four points in succession. 

The key to PASS is the implementation of a handicap system. When a stronger player plays a weaker player the weaker player will be given a certain number of points to "equalize" the playing field. The goal is to have every game reach the place where most people feel the challenge of the game, for example six to six in a seven point game, ten to ten in an eleven point game, and so on. Our Pros will comment while the game is in progress. These comments will cover all aspects, from choice of shot, to point construction, to timing of "big point/little point" and everything else in between. We strongly feel competitive instincts will greatly improve using this format. The staff at Vista feels that this program is a perfect compliment to private lessons and clinics. Players will be meeting and playing with other players that they might not have otherwise had the opportunity to meet or play with. This program is for intermediate & advanced intermediate players and with Pro approval.
